The Pleasant Life of Lake Wales

It's an excellent place to raise kids it's very quiet peaceful place. Unfortunately there's not too much for teens to do. It's great for retirement. It's nice to drive and walk down to the downtown district because there's a lot of shopping and all kinds of different things to do. There's a really nice neighborhoods in the downtown area as well. If you're interested in living in those kind of places I would definitely recommend going there.

Great place to go bowling and everything and also you can go to the church attraction known as Bok Tower . this is located by Lake Wales. I definitely appreciate the Care Center that runs the thrift store for people who want to buy cheap clothes. They help out families who are in need food and such.
Jobs are booming and the economy is amazing.

they're really great schools for kids. The town is maintained very well. There's a bike trail you can take your bike to out on the weekends or even after work if you're not too tired LOL.
It's nice little Public Library you can visit that's open for a good amount of hours.
